Coach Education

Overview of the Athletics Coach Accreditation Framework

The Athletics Coach Accreditation Framework is designed to progressively introduce the coaching skills required to develop athletes from beginner to elite. In this way the coaching pathway mimics the athlete’s pathway.  The framework is designed to allow coaches of all levels to master their coaching, be it at the beginner level or the advanced level.

 

The skills delivered at each level are significant to that level of athlete.  For example, those coaching beginner athletes need to know how to coach the basic fundamental skills for that level, without giving them too many complex skills. Mastering the fundamentals is the most important task of a beginner athlete, laying a foundation for further development of technical skills.

 

Additionally, coaches of school age children would want to be a master of the skills delivered at Level 2.  Those who are preparing athletes for State and National Championships would be utilizing the skills presented at the Level 3 and above courses.

 

Course Descriptions

Level 1 Community Athletics Coach

This is the entry level for all Accredited Athletic Coaches.  The fundamental skills of running, jumping & throwing are introduced as well as exploring how to engage athletes in long term participation and how to coach skills to beginner athletes.

This qualification is certified by the Australian Sports Commission and allows participants to be nationally accredited as part of the National Coach Accreditation Scheme.  This accreditation is transferable to other sports.

Level 2 Intermediate Club Coach

The Level 2 Intermediate Club Coach Course is the next progression from Level 1 Community Athletics Coach course and further develops coaches understanding of how to coach fundamental skills and drills.

Overview of the Recreational Running Coach Framework

This course is particularly useful for personal trainers who are looking to move into the endurance and long run training space.
